An Urbanism of Stuff
Master’s Thesis
Princeton Unviersity School of Architecture

An Urbanism of Stuff is a siteless model for shared domestic space — a model which proposes an alternative to traditional thinking on how we might live, together. With rapidly changing conditions with which we work and live, architectural discourse and production have a responsibility to adapt. Rather than a top-down proposal for a static, homogenizing architecture like housing blocks or towers, this proposition begins at the scale of furniture — one tied intimately to the human body. By shrinking privately owned property to the barest minimum — that is, a bed and small storage space — the project proposes to extract and recompose the excess material into an Urbanism of Stuff.
